    I doubt that. No, it is more likely that is a no-mans-land; where a match is both using Australian rules football and rugby league football. It's the Twilight Zone for sport fans and Australians.

    It's just Canberra guys. (We're a mixed League Union AFL city but not as Australian Rules as we were 30 years ago when that was proposed, due to having national pro teams only in League and Union)

    Rugby League gradually shades into Aussie Rules dominance the further south west you go in NSW. In practice Northern Territory is Aussie Rules and Queensland is Rugby League so the line isn't exactly straight.

    Nationally, Aussie Rules is the most popular sport by most metrics due to the preponderance of Melbourne Adelaide Perth and their stronger sports cultures. Although League is dominant in Sydney, the Sydney Swans, an AFL team, are actually the individual pro team with the highest attendences in Sydney and have been since 1995.

    Borachio: Union is pretty much only played and liked by upper class private school kids in Sydney and Brisbane and Canberra, by Kiwis and Islanders, and by South Africans in Perth.

    Union is a good game though. I've never played, and I don't like sport at all much. But I have enjoyed watching Rugby Union from time to time. It's just interesting to watch, I find.

    Why is there a chunk of 'No Religion' in the middle of Judaism and Muslim?

    That might be light judaism

    Also, Argentina and Chile have settlements on Antarctica

    No, but you can write songs about the dearth of potatoes and sell them to Americans.

    I believe exporting all country singers to Antarctica to make songs about planting potatoes in the ice would be a, well, interesting experiment to say the least.

    Hey, US! What's with all the military hardware? Who do you think is going to be attacking you so hard that you need so much of it?

    Hospitals? Universal Health Care? Space exploration?

    Foreign Aid? (nono not that one, it's much worse than it sounds)

    Infra-structure like roads, rail, and public transit systems?

    How about blue hats for everyone?

    CIA has given so much foreign aid, they probably don't even pay taxes.
